How to Apply Lara Ponytail Extension

How to Apply Lara Ponytail Extension

What’s up, babes. There’s a new braided baddie in town- and she’s a showstopper. 

Meet Lara: an extra long ponytail extension who’s made to braid. She has 3 super sleek pre-sectioned braid tails to instantly add inches to your style, & 1 wrap piece on a thick & sturdy elastic hair tie. 

TLDR: Lara’s the ultimate hack for a quick & easy long braided pony. Here’s everything you need to know about her, & how to braid your ponytail: 




At 34 inches, Lara’s our longest pony yet! Her pre-sectioned braid tails make creating sleek, extra long braids quick, easy & super natural looking.

Plus, compared to braiding other hair extensions, she blends seamlessly with your hair, lays flat at the base, and though she's extraaaa long, her sturdy & comfortable elastic construction holds the weight & minimizes the pull.

She’s silky soft & high quality, so no one even has to know that she isn't yours.

Step 1. – Put your hair in a high, mid, or low ponytail & secure it with the extra elastic hair tie included.
Step 2. – Tie the Lara pony braid elastic around your own ponytail–  Clip or pin the wrap piece away for now while you braid 
Step 3. – Get ready to braid! Part your ponytail into 3 sections grabbing the pre-sectioned braid tails.
Step 4. – Start braiding! Your hair will blend in with Lara as you go. 
Once you reach the end, tie the ends with the mini hair tie. 
Step 5. – Now, let’s wrap it up! Take the wrap piece and wrap (duh!) the hair around the elastic area to cover the hair ties– secure with the bobby pins. 

Et voila! Now you have braids fit for a goddess!



To help create a slick braided ponytail, use
INSERT SLEEK HAIR HERE to make sure hair is straight & sleek before application. We recommend using No Fly Zone pomade or gel to slick down the ends of your hair in the braid for a seamless blend.

Pro tip: use No Fly Zone throughout your ends before you start braiding for sleeker & more pliable tips that integrate easily with Lara while braiding. 

You don’t need to stick to your natural shade! Blend your hair with a different colored Lara for a multidimensional look.





You can’t go wrong with this classic twist. Rapunzel, who?

Our ponytails are heat resistant up to 320 degrees Fahrenheit. Keep in mind that our ponytails are pre-styled, and heat styling them will remove their original textures. Use the Safety Kit to extend the life of your hair and protect from heat damage.



We all want to keep our inches looking perfect for as long as possible. Here are some tips and tricks on how to care for Lara:

Brush before and after each wear with the INH Brush and Emergency Revival Spray (save 10% with the Sidekicks bundle)
Wash Lara occasionally or if she's really dirty. We don’t recommend washing her frequently. Just wash her when you absolutely need to!
Store using the super cute reusable satin storage bag that comes with Lara! It helps prevent tangles and extends the life of your hair.



Spray Emergency Revival Spray throughout the fibers. Lay your hair flat on a table, and hold the hair in sections to brush out any tangles. Starting at the ends, then mid section, and finally, up to the base. If you brush from top to bottom, the fibers can "stretch”, causing tangles and breakage, just like split ends on your real hair. Brush with the INH Brush before and after each wear. Store neatly in the provided storage bag to prevent tangles when not in use.



Yes, you can wash your ponytail extension! Here’s how:

To start, brush and detangle Lara with the INH Brush and Emergency Revival Spray  (save 10% with the Sidekicks bundle!)

Hold the wrap area with one hand and soak her under cool running water.

Use a mild or synthetic wig shampoo and lather her with your other hand using circular motions with your fingers throughout the hair until clean. DO NOT RUB or lather into a ball!

Rinse the shampoo and apply a good amount of some moisturizing conditioner or hair mask. For best results, leave the conditioner or hair mask on for about 5 to 10 minutes. (You can also leave it on overnight!). Note: do not use heavy leave-in creams or oils.

Rinse the hair under cool running water until silky smooth. Lightly detangle any knots with fingers.

Squeeze excess water, shake, then lay on a dry towel and let it air dry. 

After she has fully dried, apply Super Shine Serum for a fresh, revived and soft finish.


WARNING: Do NOT blow dry your hair pieces! Doing so may result in damage to your strands. Air dry your hair for best results.

Hi Belinda Douglass and Michelle,

Thank you for reaching out to us. Unfortunately, our Lara ponytail on has one length which is 34" – if you want to cut it short, you may do so and we suggest taking it to a professional to have it trimmed so that they can mimic the Lara’s style when you want to cut it short.

We’d also love to take this as a feedback and take it into consideration in the future. Have a good day and keep safe! 💕

INH Support

Same here .. something shorter OR can Lara be cut shorter ?


I love this and have one; I’d like to know if you have the same exact thing just a little shorter; these are 34" very long. Maybe like 26" would be great. Pls let me know. Thanks Belinda

Belinda Douglass
